001

• Before using this unit, make sure to read the

instructions below, and the Owner’s Manual.

................................................................................................

002c

• Do not open (or modify in any way) the unit or its

AC adaptor.

................................................................................................

003

• Do not attempt to repair the unit, or replace parts

within it (except when this manual provides

specific instructions directing you to do so). Refer

all servicing to your retailer, the nearest Roland

Service Center, or an authorized Roland

distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.

................................................................................................

004

• Never use or store the unit in places that are:

• Subject to temperature extremes (e.g., direct

sunlight in an enclosed vehicle, near a heating

duct, on top of heat-generating equipment); or

are

• Damp (e.g., baths, washrooms, on wet floors); or

are

• Humid; or are

• Exposed to rain; or are

• Dusty; or are

• Subject to high levels of vibration.

................................................................................................

007

• Make sure you always have the unit placed so it is

level and sure to remain stable. Never place it on

stands that could wobble, or on inclined surfaces.

................................................................................................

008c

• Be sure to use only the AC adaptor supplied with

the unit. Also, make sure the line voltage at the

installation matches the input voltage specified on

the AC adaptor’s body. Other AC adaptors may

use a different polarity, or be designed for a

different voltage, so their use could result in

damage, malfunction, or electric shock.

................................................................................................

008e

supplied power cord must not be used with any

other device.

................................................................................................

009

• Do not excessively twist or bend the power cord,

nor place heavy objects on it. Doing so can damage

the cord, producing severed elements and short

circuits. Damaged cords are fire and shock hazards!

................................................................................................

010

• This unit, either alone or in combination with an

amplifier and headphones or speakers, may be

capable of producing sound levels that could cause

permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a long

period of time at a high volume level, or at a level

that is uncomfortable. If you experience any hearing

loss or ringing in the ears, you should immediately

stop using the unit, and consult an audiologist.

................................................................................................

011

USING THE UNIT SAFELY

012b

• Immediately turn the power off, remove the AC

adaptor from the outlet, and request servicing by

your retailer, the nearest Roland Service Center, or

an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the

“Information” page when:

• The AC adaptor, the power-supply cord, or the

plug has been damaged; or

• If smoke or unusual odor occurs

• Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been

spilled onto the unit; or

• The unit has been exposed to rain (or otherwise

has become wet); or

• The unit does not appear to operate normally or

exhibits a marked change in performance.

................................................................................................

013

• In households with small children, an adult should

provide supervision until the child is capable of

following all the rules essential for the safe

operation of the unit.

................................................................................................

014

• Protect the unit from strong impact.

(Do not drop it!)

................................................................................................

015

• Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to share an

outlet with an unreasonable number of other devices.

Be especially careful when using extension cords—the

total power used by all devices you have connected to

the extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the

power rating (watts/amperes) for the extension cord.

Excessive loads can cause the insulation on the cord to

heat up and eventually melt through.

................................................................................................

016

• Before using the unit in a foreign country, consult

with your retailer, the nearest Roland Service

Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as

listed on the “Information” page.

................................................................................................

101b

• The unit and the AC adaptor should be located so

their location or position does not interfere with

their proper ventilation.

................................................................................................

103b

• At regular intervals, you should unplug the AC

adaptor and clean it by using a dry cloth to wipe all

dust and other accumulations away from its

prongs. Also, disconnect the power plug from the

power outlet whenever the unit is to remain unused

for an extended period of time. Any accumulation

of dust between the power plug and the power

outlet can result in poor insulation and lead to fire.

................................................................................................

102c

• Always grasp only the plug on the AC adaptor

cord when plugging into, or unplugging from, an

outlet or this unit.

................................................................................................

104

• Try to prevent cords and cables from becoming

entangled. Also, all cords and cables should be

placed so they are out of the reach of children.

................................................................................................

106

• Never climb on top of, nor place heavy objects on

the unit.

................................................................................................

107c

• Never handle the AC adaptor or its plugs with wet

hands when plugging into, or unplugging from, an

outlet or this unit.

................................................................................................

108d: Selection

• If you need to move the instrument, take note of the

precautions listed below. At least two persons are

required to safely lift and move the unit. It should

be handled carefully, all the while keeping it level.

Make sure to have a firm grip, to protect yourself

from injury and the instrument from damage.

1 • Check to make sure the attachment screws and

stabilizer screw securing the unit to the stand

have not become loose. Fasten them again

securely whenever you notice any loosening.

2 • Disconnect the power cord.

3 • Disconnect all cords coming from external devices.

5 • Close the lid.

................................................................................................

109b

• Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power and

unplug the AC adaptor from the outlet (p. 11).

................................................................................................

110b

• Whenever you suspect the possibility of lightning in

your area, disconnect the AC adaptor from the outlet.

................................................................................................

116

• Be careful when opening/closing the lid so you do not

get your fingers pinched (p. 13). Adult supervision is

recommended whenever small children use the unit.

................................................................................................

118c

• Keep any attachment screw, stabilizer screws, and

cord clamp you may remove and the included

attachment screw, stabilizer screws, and cord clamp

in a safe place out of children’s reach, so there is no

chance of them being swallowed accidentally.

................................................................................................

119

IMPORTANT NOTES

291a

In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2, please read and observe the following:

Power Supply

301

• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is

being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an

inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,

microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a

motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical

appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit to

malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not

practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power

supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet.

302

• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of

consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.

307

• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the

power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions

and/or damage to speakers or other devices.

Placement

351

• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment

containing large power transformers) may induce hum. To

alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or

move it farther away from the source of interference.

352a

• This device may interfere with radio and television reception.

Do not use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.

352b

• Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices,

such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit.

Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or

while conversing. Should you experience such problems,

you should relocate such wireless devices so they are at a

greater distance from this unit, or switch them off.

354b

• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near

devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed

vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.

Also, do not allow lighting devices that normally are used

while their light source is very close to the unit (such as a

piano light), or powerful spotlights to shine upon the same

area of the unit for extended periods of time. Excessive

heat can deform or discolor the unit.

355b

• When moved from one location to another where the

temperature and/or humidity is very different, water

droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage

or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in

this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must

allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation

has completely evaporated.

356

• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain

on the unit for long periods of time. Such objects can

discolor or otherwise harmfully affect the finish.

358

• Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard or

pedal board. This can be the cause of malfunction, such as

keys ceasing to produce sound.

359

• Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument.

Peeling such matter off the instrument may damage the

exterior finish.

Maintenance

401b

• To clean the unit, use a dry, soft cloth; or one that is slightly

dampened. Try to wipe the entire surface using an equal

amount of strength, moving the cloth along with the grain of the

wood. Rubbing too hard in the same area can damage the finish.

402

• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind,

to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.

Additional Precautions

552

• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents

of data that was stored in the unit’s memory once it has

been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability

concerning such loss of data.

553

• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s

buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks

and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.

554

• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.

555

• A small amount of noise may be heard from the display

during normal operation.

556

• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector

itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing

shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal elements.

558a

• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s

volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use

headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about

those around you (especially when it is late at night).

559a

• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box

(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise,

you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.

560

• Do not apply undue force to the music rest while it is in use.

562

• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using

some other make of connection cable, please note the

following precautions.

• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use

cables that incorporate resistors for connecting to this

unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound level to

be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information

on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer

of the cable.

565

• Before opening or closing the keyboard lid, always make

sure that no pets or other small animals are located on top of

the instrument (in particular, they should be kept away from

the keyboard and its lid). Otherwise, due to the structural

design of this instrument, small pets or other animals could

end up getting trapped inside it. If such a situation is encountered,

you must immediately switch off the power and

disconnect the power cord from the outlet. You should then

consult with the retailer from whom the instrument was

purchased, or contact the nearest Roland Service Center.

Before You Start Playing

Connect the AC Adaptor

921

To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other

devices, always turn down the volume, and turn off the power

on all devices before making any connections.

1. Connect the supplied AC adaptor and AC cord.

fig.00-02.e

2. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC In connector

on the rear panel.

3. As shown in the diagram, loop the AC adaptor

cord around the cord hook to fasten it in place.

fig.00-01.e

927

Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you

may experience a discomforting sensation, or perceive that the

surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch this device or

the metal portions of other objects connected to it. This is due

to an infinitesimal electrical charge, which is absolutely

harmless. However, if you are concerned about this, connect

the ground terminal (see figure) with an external ground.

When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may occur,

depending on the particulars of your installation. If you are

unsure of the connection method, contact the nearest Roland

Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed

on the “Information” page.

Unsuitable places for connection

• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)

• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)

• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be

dangerous in the event of lightning)

To prevent the inadvertent disruption of power to your unit

(should the plug be pulled out accidentally), and to avoid

applying undue stress to the AC adaptor jack, anchor the

power cord using the cord hook, as shown in the illustration

above.

Even if the cord is fastened, strong tension applied to the cord

may cause it to be damaged or broken. Be careful not to pull

the cord accidentally, or to apply strong pressure to it.

About the Pedals

For more on connecting the DP-900's pedals, refer to p. 8.

■ Pedal Functions

fig.pedal.e

Connecting Headphones

(Sold Separately)

The DP-900 has two jacks for plugging in headphones. This

allows two people to listen through headphones

simultaneously, making it very useful for lessons and when

performing piano pieces for four hands. Additionally, this

allows you to play without having to worry about bothering

others around you, even at night.

fig.00-08

Soft Pedal

Damper Pedal

Soft Pedal

This pedal is used to make the sound softer.

Playing with the soft pedal depressed produces a sound that is

not as strong as when otherwise played with the equivalent

strength.

This is the same function as the left pedal of an acoustic piano.

Some tones are affected less than others.

Connect the headphones to either of the

headphone jacks.

The headphone volume is adjusted by the [Volume] knob

of the DP-900.

Damper Pedal

Use this pedal to sustain the sound.

While the pedal is depressed, long lingering reverberations

continue to be added to the sound after you release from the

keys.

This is the same function as the right pedal of an acoustic

piano.

Unplugging a pedal cord from the unit while the power is on

may cause the pedal’s effect to be applied without stopping.

The power of the DP-900 must be turned off before inserting

or removing a pedal cord.

Use stereo headphones that have a 1/4” phone plug.

Some notes on using headphones

• To prevent damage to the cord, handle the headphones

only by the headset or the plug.

• Connecting the headphones when the volume of

connected equipment is turned up may result in damage

to the headphones. Lower the volume on the DP-900

before plugging in the headphones.

• Listening at excessively high volume levels will not only

damage the headphones, but may also cause hearing loss.

Use the headphones at a moderate volume level.

Before You Start Playing

Opening and Closing the Lid

Always use two hands to open and close the lid.

Although the DP-900's lid is designed to close slowly and

gently when it is released, the lid immediately closes if it has

been opened only slightly. Take care not to allow your fingers

to become pinched by the lid.

■ Closing the Lid

1. When closing the lid, be sure to close the music

rest and open the blind.

Playing the Keyboard

Transposing the Key of the Keyboard

(Transpose)

fig.panel2-6

By using the “Transpose function,” you can transpose your performance

without changing the notes you play. For example, even if the song is in a

difficult key with numerous sharps ( ) or flats ( ), you can transpose it to

a key that is easier for you to play.

When accompanying a vocalist, you can easily transpose the pitch to a range

that is comfortable for the singer, while still playing the notes as written (i.e.,

with the same fingering positions).

1

1. Continue to hold down the [Transpose] button, and press a note

to indicate the tonic of the key to which you want to transpose.

The button’s indicator will light, and the keyboard will be transposed.

You can also transpose by holding down the [Transpose] button and pressing

the [+] or [-] button.

If you hold down the [Transpose] button and press the [+] and [-] buttons

simultaneously, the setting will return to the original value (0).

This can be set in a range of -6–0–5 (semitone steps).

For example, if you want the E pitch to sound when you play the C key, hold

down the [Transpose] button and press the E key.

Counting from C as a reference point, one moves up four keys, including the

black keys, to reach E, thus “4” appears in the display.

When you hold down the

[Transpose] button, the

currently specified value

will be displayed.

fig.trans.e

If you play C E G

It will sound E G # B

When the transpose value is set to “0,” the button’s indicator will remain dark

even if you press the [Transpose] button.

To cancel the transpose function, press the [Transpose] button, extinguishing

its indicator.

When you press the [Transpose] button once again, getting its indicator to

light, the keyboard will be transposed to the note you specified here.

This setting returns to the

original value (0) when

you turn off the power.

Playing Along with the Internal Songs

Here’s how you can play along with the internal songs.

You can slow down the playback tempo of the song, or play back each hand

separately.

Before you try playing the song, listen to it several times to get a general feel

for the song.

For details on operation, refer to “Choosing the song to play back” (p. 15).

Changing the Tempo

If the song has a rapid tempo, you can slow down the tempo so that you can

practice it more easily. It is effective to gradually raise the tempo as you practice.

If you turn on the

metronome while the song

plays back, the metronome

will sound at the beat and

tempo of the song.

■ Adding a Count-in to Match the Timing (Count-In)

When you’re playing along with a song, you can make sure that your playing

is in time with the song by sounding a count before the song starts playing.

Sounding a “count sound” leading up to playback of a song is called “Count-

In.”

On the DP-900, if you playback a song while the metronome is sounding, two

measures of lead-in count will be heard at the beginning of the song.

During the count-in, the

count measure is indicated

in the display as “-2” then

Changing Various Settings

Changing the Damper Pedal’s

Resonance

On an acoustic piano, depressing the damper pedal makes the

notes you play resonate with other strings, adding rich

reverberations and fatness to the sound. The damper pedal on

the DP-900 recreates this resonance (sympathetic resonance)

when depressed.

You can select from eight levels of depth for the resonant

sound (resonance level).

This is set to “5” when the instrument is turned on.

* This setting is valid only for some piano tones. It cannot be

made for other tones.

1. Hold down the [Reverb] button and [Split]

button, and press the [-] or [+] button.

■ Tuning to Other Instruments’

Pitches (Master Tuning)

In situations such as when playing ensemble with other

instruments, you can tune the DP-900’s reference pitch to the

pitch of another instrument. The standard pitch generally

refers to the pitch of the note that’s played when you finger

the middle A key. This tuning of all the instruments to a

standard pitch is called “tuning.”

If you press the [Piano] button in step 2 of “Making Detailed

Settings (Function)” (p. 31), a display like the following will

appear.

fig.disp-tune

The last three digits are indicated in the display. “440.0 Hz” is

indicated in the figure above.

Value

415.3 Hz-440.0 Hz-466.2 Hz

Power-up default setting 440.0 Hz

This setting remains in effect until you turn off the power.

Changing Various Settings

■ Changing the Temperament

You can play classical styles such as Baroque using historic

temperaments (tuning methods).

Today, compositions are generally created with equal

temperament in mind and are played using equal

temperament. However in past ages of classical music, a

variety of temperaments were used. Playing a composition

with its original tuning lets you enjoy the sonorities of the

chords that the composer originally intended.

If you press the [E.Piano] button in step 2 of “Making

Detailed Settings (Function)” (p. 31), a display like the

following will appear.

fig.disp-temp.e

Temperament

Tonic

You can choose from among the seven temperaments

described below.

Display

Temperament

Qualities

1 Equal In this tuning, each octave is divided

into twelve equal steps.

Every interval produces about

the same amount of slight dissonance.

This setting is in effect

when you turn on the power.

2 Pythagorean This tuning, devised by the philosopher

Pythagoras, eliminates

dissonance in fourths and fifths.

Dissonance is produced by

third-interval chords, but melodies

are euphonious.

3 Just Major This tuning eliminates ambiguities

in the fifths and thirds. It is

unsuited to playing melodies

and cannot be transposed, but is

capable of beautiful sonorities.

4 Just Minor The Just tunings differ from major

and minor keys. You can get

the same effect with the minor

scale as with the major scale.

5 Mean Tone This scale makes some compromises

in just intonation, enabling

transposition to other keys.

6 Werckmeister This temperament combines the

Mean Tone and Pythagorean tunings.

Performances are possible

in all keys (first technique, III).

7 Kirn-berger This is an improvement of the

Mean Tone and Just tunings that

provides a high degree of freedom

of modulation. Performances

are possible in all keys (III).

Power-up default setting

1 C

Tonic

When playing with tuning other than equal temperament, you

need to specify the keynote for tuning the song to be

performed (that is, the note that corresponds to C for a major

key or to A for a minor key).

While hold down the [E. Piano] button, and press a note to

specify the desired tonic key.

The tonic note you specify will be displayed as follows.

fig.Chart-note2.e

Display C d_ d E_ E F F G A_ A b_ b

If you choose an equal temperament, there’s no need to select

a keynote.

* If you record with a temperament other than equal

temperament selected, and then want to play back that

performance, use this setting to select the same temperament

for playback as the temperament you used when recording.

* When performing in ensemble with other instruments, be

aware that depending on the key, there may be some shifting of

the pitch. Tune the DP-900 to the fundamental pitch of the

other instruments.

■ Setting the Tuning Curve

(Stretch Tuning)

A piano is generally tuned to a pitch with a lower bass range

and a higher treble range than equal temperament. This

special tuning method for pianos is called “Stretch Tuning.”

If you press the [Harpsichord] button in step 2 of “Making

Detailed Settings (Function)” (p. 31), a display like the

following will appear.

fig.disp-On

C D D E E F F G A A B B

This is the standard tuning curve. This is the right

choice when using Dual play (p. 17), or when playing

in ensemble with other instruments.

This tuning curve expands the bass and treble ends

somewhat. It is suitable for performances such as

piano solos. This setting is in effect when you turn on

the power.

Power-up default setting

On

→ This effect works only with the piano tones.

Changing Various Settings

■ Applying the Damper Pedal to

the Left-hand Keyboard Area

When you are using Split play (p. 18), you can apply the

damper pedal effect to the sound played by the left-hand

keyboard range.

Preventing the Settings from

Changing During Performance

■ Tone Lock

You can set the instrument so all of its buttons are disabled

(the settings in effect at that time will be maintained). This

prevents the settings from being inadvertently modified even

if children press the buttons accidentally.

■ Disabling Everything Except

Piano Play (Panel Lock)

The “Panel Lock” function locks the DP-900 in a state where

only piano performance can be used, and all buttons will be

disabled. In the Panel Lock state, only the grand piano sound

can be played.

1. Turn the volume to the minimum, and press the

[Power] switch to turn off the power.

2. Hold down the [Piano] button and press the

[Power] switch to turn on the power.

Connecting MIDI Devices

By connecting an external MIDI device and exchanging

performance data, you can control the performances on one

device from the other. For instance, you can output sound from

the other instrument or switch tones on the other instrument.

■ What’s MIDI?

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, an

international standard which allows performance information

to be communicated among electronic musical instruments

and computers.

The DP-900 provides MIDI connectors, which allow

performance data to be exchanged with external devices. When

these connectors are used to connect the DP-900 to external

devices, an even wider range of possibilities becomes available.

984

* A separate publication titled “MIDI Implementation” is also

available. It provides complete details concerning the way

MIDI has been implemented on this unit. If you should require

this publication (such as when you intend to carry out bytelevel

programming), please contact the nearest Roland Service

Center or authorized Roland distributor.

If you select an internal song in which

the tempo changes during the song,

and then record, the tempo will

change in the same way for the performances.

The tempo of the metronome

will also change in the same way.

If you record additional material without

erasing the previously recorded

song, the song will be recorded at the

first-recorded tempo. Please erase the

previously recorded song before you

re-record (p. 30).

When an internal song is played back,

the metronome sounds the ordinary

metronome sound.

When a recorded performance is

played back, the metronome sounds

the sound that was selected when the

recording was made.

Any performance that has been recorded

is deleted when the power to

the DP-900 is turned off. A performance

cannot be restored once it’s

been deleted.

Is the pedal connected correctly?

Make sure the pedal cord extending

from the stand is securely connected to

the pedal jack on the rear of the unit (p.

12).

Since the DP-900’s piano sounds faithfully

reproduce the sense of spaciousness

and reverberation of an actual

acoustic piano’s sound, a certain

amount of reverberation is still perceptible,

even with the reverb effect deactivated.

The sound may distort if the volume is

turned up too much. Adjust the volume

with the [Volume] knob (p. 14).

Also, with certain tones the sound can

seem to be distorted.

37


Troubleshooting

Case

In the upper

range, the sound

changes abruptly

beyond a certain

key

A High-pitched

whine is produced

Cause/Remedy

On an acoustic piano, notes in the upper

one and a half octaves of the keyboard

continue to sound until they

decay naturally, regardless of the

damper pedal. There is a difference in

the timbre as well. Roland pianos

faithfully simulate such characteristics

of the acoustic piano. On the DP-900,

the range that is unaffected by the

damper pedal will change depending

on the Key Transpose setting.

When listening through headphones:

Some of the more flamboyant and

effervescent piano tones feature an

ample high-end component,

which may make the sound appear

to have metallic reverberation

added. Since this

reverberation becomes particularly

audible when supplemented by

heavy reverb, you may be able to

diminish the problem by reducing

the amount of reverb applied to

the sound.

If you can’t hear the problem in the

headphones:

Here, a different cause (such as

resonance produced by the DP-

900) would be suspect. Consult

your Roland dealer or nearest Roland

Service Center.

Case

The bass range

sounds odd, or

there is a vibrating

resonance

The volume level

of the instrument

connected to Input

jacks is too

low

926b

Cause/Remedy

If you can’t hear the problem in the

headphones:

Playing at loud volumes may

cause instruments near the DP-900

to resonate.

Resonation can also occur with

fluorescent light tubes, glass

doors, and other objects. In particular,

this problem occurs more

easily when the bass component is

increased, and when the sound is

played at higher volumes. Use the

following measures to suppress

such resonance.

• Place speakers so they are 10–15

cm from walls and other surfaces.

• Reduce the volume.

• Move the speakers away from any

resonating objects.

When listening through headphones:

Here, a different cause (such as

resonance produced by the DP-

900) would be suspect. Consult

your Roland dealer or nearest Roland

Service Center.

Could you be using a connection cable

that contains a resistor?

Use a connection cable that does not

contain a resistor.
